When a canal boat or barge la tied

are taken off, the elevator's "leg," by

two gigantic box-like tube of wood
running side by aide and joining at
the bottom and top. Within them,

with sharp sides, known a "bucket."
Kat'h holds a quarter of a bushel, and
they are about a foot apart. The chain
carries them along at a rapid rate, and

Here come In one of the predlest
feature of elevator work, and one that
Is easily to be sn-n. The elevator's sides
and Interior partitions shroud much
of Ha operation In mysteries, but the
weighing is In full view. Directly un
der the great hopper, on the Aral floor.
Is a huge scale, surmounted by a bin
with a glass "peek hole. The weigher
moves a lever of wood. There Is at
once a rush within. A vaat quantity of
grain comes tumbling down. In lees

looking tbiMtigh the glue, tin t'Ui is

lever. Presto! the maaa of groin limlde
the bin Is disappearing. It la eliding
out of aluht: It Is vanishing. In half
a minute It la no longer to be seen,
and the weigher phlegmatlcally pulls
down the first lever 'and lets-another
seventy-five bushels Into. (he bin.
The Weigher Is a most Important
factor In an elevator. It 'Is he who
checks off the quantity of grain that
posses through the elevator and pro
vldes the figure for the accountants
and the billing. Woe betide him if he
makes an error or mlaflguree. In an
hour one hundred blnfula must pass
before his eyes.
The grain as It has disappeared haa
dropped down into the elevator's eel
lar. Thence It Is carried up on another
endless chain of buckets, now known
a' slofter. each holding half a bushel
high Into the Interior of the tower, to
be dropped on the screena. Here the
